PASTURE SAGE (Artemisia frigida)
This is my favorite Manitoba sage. The soft, feathery, dusty green leaves are very unique and attractive. When rubbed, the plant emits a wonderful scent that’s slightly sweeter than prairie sage. Pasture sage is wind-pollinated, so don’t expect it to attract pollinating insects. It will, however attract the attention of anyone who walks past your native prairie garden. Plants are clump-forming and do not spread vegetatively.
